in our team covering it this morning. jake tapper, jon karl on capitol hill. jon, given the deadlock, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell says he doesn't think a deal can be reached, so he's come up with a last-ditch fallback which puts the burden on the president. >> reporter: last choice option, only if the talks completely collapse. it's complicated but the bottom line is, it would give the president the auththity on his own to gradually raise that debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion between now and the election. the political burden is all the president's. he can do it without spending cuts and even in the face of opposition from the majority in congress. but i've got to tell you, george i talked to a lot of republicans in the house, rank and file, who say it's not acceptable. they want real spending cut, a lot of them and nothing else. >> there's no guarantee of spending cuts even though it would avoid tax increases. let me bring in jake tapper for the response on that. any openness in the white house to that and where do they think the talks are right now? are they as pessim
following overnight but democrats and republicans seem no closer to a deal. abc's jon karl is covering it from capitol hill. we are seeing fire from the house speaker. >> reporter: we sure are. this vote today on his debt ceiling plan is the highest-stakes vote of his term as speaker of the house, and he is doing everything he can to get those tea partyers in line. john boehner is now demanding republicans stand with their party. in a closed door meeting he had a stern message for tea partyers who just don't like his debt ceiling plan. boehner told them get your ass in line. sources at the meeting tell abc news, a day after another republican leader attempted to rally the troops with a clip from the movie "the town." >> i need your help. i can't tell you what it is. you can never ask me about it later and we're going to hurt some people. >> which car are we going to ta take? >> reporter: allen west liked what he heard. >> i told him i would drive the car. >> they could have used "rudy," "hoosiers," "band of brothers" but this is the movie they decided on. >> reporter: maybe they can us

was always crazy. but some of those like tim pawlenty, if you go watch back when he was on jon stewart the first time i ever saw him, he struck me a as a nice fella. and purposely reasonable guy. and now he is saying a lot of crazy stuff. the question is, whether they'll to come back from the? what seems to be hav happening s they seem to be setting up mitch daniels to be the guy. he will strike everybody as sane. he will be a very tough opponent. and as far as the demographics, well, i think minorities and young people are going to be the hardest people to turn out after the disappointment of, between 2008 and 2012. i think a lot of people, george bush was so horrible, and again the idea of electing an african-american named barack hussein obama was so amazing that i think we can all forgive ourselves whatever illusions we had up through election day. i forgive myself. but the fact is, is that he, the greatest criticism i would make of obama is, because again, i wrote a whole book called the system versus barack obama. we had to fight to change the system. just a quick aside because t
in his district. in fact, the first one's going to be august 7th with jon huntsman. a little later in the month, august 25th, michele bachmann will appear. he says he's going to have all the questions come from the audience, they'll pick them out, whatever the question is, he will ask the candidate. this is pretty interesting, because on labor day, we'll see senator jim demint, south carolina senator, he's holding a similar type of forum. in the past it's been the media, been us, we've done a good job of it, but now the lawmakers want to get involved as well. >> i'm sure they do. mark, i want to ask you to stick around. this is rare. no real news value to this story, but this video has gone viral and we have to share this video of two dogs, one starts with a fight with his friend, then you see that? he gets bitten, then boom, this dog actually plays dead, then he gets up, does it again. you've got to watch this carefully. scuffle, bitten on the neck, boom, goes down, plays dead. then looks, is he still here? raises his head. isn't that hilarious? >> he deserves an oscar. good lord.
and there is still no agreement on what to do. sounds like a broken record. >> absolutely. as abc's jon karl reports it's not just democrats versus republicans, it's republicans versus republicans. >> reporter: john boehner is cracking the whip. he convened a meeting of all 240 house republicans today. sources who were there tell abc he had a blunt message for tea partyers. get your ass in line, he said, i can't do this job unless you are behind me. >> get you guys in line? >> we are a team, we are about trying to move the country forward. >> reporter: the tough talk does appear to be working. but it's not an easy sell. some of the tea partyers still just don't believe those dire warnings about government default. >> armageddon happens at midnight, august 3, is not the case, it is not true. >> reporter: kevin mccarthy, the third ranking republican in the house, urged republicans to unite behind boehner's plan by showing this clip from "the town." >> i need your help. i can't tell you what it is, you can never ask me about it later, we're going to hurt some people. >> which car we going to take? >> r
was former utah governor jon huntsman, the most moderate of the candidates vying for the anti-romney vote. huntsman has already ruled out competing in iowa and understands new hampshire is a must-win state. >> it is absolutely central to victory. this is a state you must win. >> reporter: in iowa, which votes first in a presidential contest, candidates were fighting for the social conservative vote. there were long shots newt gingrich and rick santorum. as well as tea party sensation michele bachmann. a recent poll has the minnesota congresswoman in a statistical dead heat with romney while gingrich and santorum barely made a dent in the single digits. tim pawlenty also polled poorly there. he raised a disappointing $4.2 million this quarter and has had no public event over the holiday weekend. but those in the bottom half of the poll can take comfort in the fact that the early polls don't tell us that much. this time four years ago mike huckabee was way down at 4% right where rick santorum is today. huckabee ended up winning iowa. >> jan crawford in washington this morning, thanks. >>> j
leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presented a united front before the gop conference whi
